Shared login for Miva Merchant and CPG 1.2
« on: November 19, 2003, 09:25:09 pm »

I'd like to create a common/shared login for a Miva Merchant shopping cart and CPG 1.2 (which on the same UNIX webserver) so that visitors can login once and have access to both website functions.

If feasible, would it be better to use a single shared database for user information or use a script to submit inquiries to separate user databases simultaneously?

Anyone ever successfully completed this. If so how?

take a look into the code and see how the bbs integration is done: you can have a different user database table using a "bridge file" (there are some that come with coppermine, you'll just have to edit one to work with your database); but remember: this won't make coppermine a professional ecom solution, it just links the user management.
